It's finally here. Pitchers and catchers report today. It's officially the on-season as the long off-season has come to a close. The first real step towards getting real baseball back in our lives. What's crazy though is that even though Spring Training is officially set to begin, a decent number of notable free agents are still exactly that. However, it seems likely that the Orioles will be taking two of the free agents off the market.
Sources: The expectation of O's is that they will finish deals with both Gallardo and Fowler; Fowler expected to be BAL's right fielder.— Buster Olney (@Buster_ESPN) February 18, 2016
In some sadder news though, Andy Pettitte's son Josh will require a second Tommy John Surgery as he tore his UCL while attempting a comeback from the first.
Best of luck, Petite Pettitte

Song of the Day
Under Pressure by Queen
It's Greg Likes Long Theme Names Week, or PSA Staff Picks Love Songs Week on Pinstripe Alley. Today's choice comes from the one and only Jason Cohen. And an excellent choice at that, as it' is, in my opinion (so basically fact), one of the best songs ever. As always, please link us your song of the day.
Feel free to use this as your open thread for the day. Send me pork buns.
